You’ve Got To Be Kidding Todd Alexander

307.206 ALE – (Frankton) 

Todd and Jeff have left their inner-city jobs and life to move to the country; growing olives, grapes and running a five star B&B. They’re living the dream… or are they? Battling bushfires, drought, sick animals, failed crops, broken machinery, the unstoppable breeding of peafowl… sometimes life can be hard. And yet, they can’t imagine being anywhere else.  A sincere, funny, warts-and-all expose on country living.

The Day I Was Erased

Kids’ Read

The Day I Was Erased Lisa Thompson

CPIC H – (Frankton, Arrowtown, Queenstown)

Maxwell is always in trouble. He’s a total menace to his teachers and big sister, but has a soft side, too: he rescued his dog, Monster, from being run over and checks on his elderly neighbour after school. One day, while looking through a mysterious cabinet of curiosities, Maxwell finds himself erased from his life: it’s as if he’s never been born. At first, being able to walk around without being yelled at is great, but Maxwell starts to miss his old life. And, if he’d never existed, then he wouldn’t have saved Monster from being hit by that car… Is there a way to reverse the erasure and save the day once more? A story of family, friendship and finding your place in the world.
